Thanks for the reply, Juhn. You may have to expound a bit on your direction.

Assuming good luck: you're saying use mini vice grips to grab the remaining part of the broken stud (in the engine) then remove it. THEN, remove (borrow) a stud from the chain housing cover to be used at the thermostat (I assume they're the same size?) then reimstall the thermostat. .

How would I use a bolt on the chain housing cover when I would have removed (borrowed) the stud that this nut would attach to?

Man, I'm confused,..I appreciate your patience John...Guess I need to look at the drawings to better understand your directions..............

What if theyr IS NOT enough of the broken stuf to grab to? Then what?

Man, the weather looks great today for a drive.....I feel sick to my stomach thinking about it,...maybe it's not as bad as it seems........ (or not).....

Thanks for any help provided....................
